    Since winter 2004-2005 when I was at WSU, the Super Bowl planning was all the rage, and we didn't know Dan Gilbert would ever be a developer here.

    That's just provincial and basic. I agree with EGrant. The DIA isn't filled with art made by Detroiters only. Perhaps some, thank goodness, but I am not sure the city and its elite should limit...

    The only credit I give to the developers is that they are thinking outside the box and see their developable land as something interesting, diverse, and not white-bread par for the course.

    Still,...

    So tired of looking at parked cars and chain link fence on the Monroe Block. It really is an unacceptable land use and a blight that holds back what is otherwise a gem and centerpoint of the city...

    Definitely sub-par but at this point we need to cut our losses and activate that enormous block. The linkage from Washington Blvd. into Foxtown, in terms of retail and street life, is much needed--...

    Promising- that is a stretch of Jefferson that could use density to foster the urban/walkable linkage from Gold Coast/W. Village into E. Riverfront.

    We'll see what type of finishing touches and landscaping they do to make this complete. I like the Atwater street side with the minimal setback. Riopelle has an awkwardly huge setback. The gated...

    This is all probably quite right, but let's not forget that Detroit's voting equipment surely is not appropriately funded by state and federal sources as it ought.

    No need to scoff at the mere existence of such a venue. Now, if turns out to be not that good-- if they do not execute and deliver on the price and the hype-- then they are clowns and should be run...

    Big fan of the conceptual shape, size, and materials. 1953 as much as I wish we had what was there before, the shape and size of this is in many ways a postmodern reinterpretation of what was there...

    Great info. It can't be in such bad shape, then. The corner building certainly has significance but from a design standpoint it isn't the biggest contributor. The Pochelon Building is a gem and...
